The thing I love about Friday afternoons is organizing for Mondays! I review the week see what worked, what didn't and set up next week accordingly. This week I had been able to take some time away from performance coaching and talking to agents about business strategies by actually participating in some events in our office. Our Regional Icon, Gail Leithner, had some great things planned for this week. Tuesday night we had our 1st Vendor's night. We had about 12 different vendors set up tables. 10% of their sales went to KW Cares. We don't have a final count yet as sales are still coming in, but we did have a business we work with donate $100.00 anonymously because they were unable to come. We had a modest 50-50 split and had free refreshments that were brought in by the agents from our office. This was a great social event for a good cause and we are doing it again next year...we must have done OK, because the vendors wanted to come back!
Our office park had a blood drive to support UNYTS and as Team Leader I lead by example and donated for the 1st time ever. I will say that it was an interesting experience, not wanting to discourage anyone from donating blood. I would do it again, but I now know that I need more than 10 minutes of rest when I am done. The phlebotomist said that maybe my normally low blood pressure just means i might have to keep laying down for 30 minutes after. I had felt fine til about a minute after I stood up.
Next week it is back to teaching and helping agents stay in focus.
